I thought it would be fun to make up our own QT Archives screenplay for The Vega Brothers film that was never made (Thank God!!). This script can go into any kind of movie genres you want: Comedy, Action, Crime, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Horror, Drama etc etc. It must revolve around Vincent and Toothpick Vic Vega though and take place in QTs “Realer Than Real World” Universe. You can cut to other characters in other places, but try to keep it as close to the Bros life as possible. Happy writing and have fun!
NOTE: If you dont know screenplay lingo, just write what you want it to look like in regular terms. This script isnt meant to be serious, just something to have a good time with. Noone wants to see a Vega Brothers film anyway!
"THE VEGA BROTHERS"
Screenplay by The QT ARCHIVES GROUP
based on characters created by Quentin Tarantino
Over Black we hear the sounds of a child crying like a banshee.
BLACK & WHITE. WE ARE IN 1950s BROOKLYN NEW YORK. AN APARTMENT IN A NICE TENEMENT.
We see a small child with a mop of fake looking “Baby Toupee” black hair aiming a gun at his younger brother, who also has the fake “Baby Toupee” black hair and has a toothpick hanging out of his mouth, drool dribbles onto the floor. This brat aint happy.
A short fat older Italian man (the boys’ father), VINCENT “VINNIE” VEGA Sr (to be played by Joe Pesci) runs into the room and screams at the older boy.
VINNIE: VINCENT! SON OF A-MOOK! I told you not to shoot that mutha-fuckin gun at Lil Vicky!
Vincent Jr: But Pop, Vicky stole my Dick Tracy watch!
VINNIE: I dont give a ratsazz if he stole it from the Pope! You dont shoot that fuckin gun at Vicky!
Vinnie Sr grabs the gun and throws it out the window…
A bald Asian man in black n white suit walking down the street. He gets hit off the head with the gun and falls down.
CUT TO APARTMENT
Vincent Sr (screams at Vinnie Jr): Guns arent fockin toys! Your uncle Vito got his guts blown out by some wack job just last munt (month), I dont ever wanna see you playin wit guns no more! If your mudda were here…
Vincent Sr trails off and looks at Vinnie Jr who he can see is saddened. Vinnie Sr forgets his anger and hugs both his son. We see Vincent Jr smile in a strange way. Lil Vicky drools some more.
FADE TO BLACK
Cool 50s rockabilly music plays as we see montage of The Vega Family (Vincent Sr, Jr, Vic) doing different things: Backyard BBQs, Football Games, Mobster Gatherings. We see pictures of Vinnie Sr with Vinnie Jr and Vic as they get older and grow into their teens, then young men, then adults. We see the funeral of Vinnie Sr and the last shot in the opening montage is the front of the late Vincent Srs “Vega & Sons” Club. Vincent and Toothpick Vic are standing in front smiling. They arent wearing black and white suits, but more casual Brooklyn NY clothes. The songs ends and we fade to black again…Ã‚Âµ
